On display at the Edmond Historical Society and Museum through April 12th, the Arbor Day Art Show includes artwork by Edmond fifth graders depicting their interpretation of the theme “Trees in Our Town”. This fourth annual event has grown this year to include the Arbor Day Poster Contest artwork from first through fifth place students at 16 Edmond schools.

In 2011, the Arbor Day Art Show was established to showcase multiple posters from each school, displaying varying interpretations of trees by Edmond’s youth. Not only does the Arbor Day Poster Contest serve as a fun annual event, but it also opens up dialogue and consideration about the vast benefits of trees among the future caretakers of the Edmond environment.
The City of Edmond would like to thank the Edmond Historical Society and Museum for serving as the host for this event for the second consecutive year. Thank you also to the Edmond Public Schools fifth grade art teachers for their assistance in facilitating this program and to our sponsors, Frame Master Gallery and Citizens Bank of Edmond. Frame Master Gallery has donated framing for the first place posters and Citizens Bank donates gift cards for the first place students as well. Both are long time sponsors of the Arbor Day Poster Contest, and their support is greatly appreciated.
